I realized that some of the best things in life were right in front of my face. I began accepting who I was and who I wanted to be. I stopped hiding behind the person that I thought everyone else wanted me to be.
Accept yourself for who you are and where you are. Of course that doesn't mean that you have to be satisfied and not seek to improve. I found that I couldn't move forward until I accepted where I was! Once i did moving forward was easier.
Now I have fully accepted myself and others can take me or leave me thats OK...because now I have accepted myself and i love who I am!
